Nothing beats a cabin. Am I right? A nice little cozy cabin, everything in its cozy place. A private world of your own that at the same time encourages you to live at a reasonable scale with the world at large. Preferably one that is energy efficient and easy to maintain….

So then maybe tee-pees are more excellent. A tee-pee may be better looking, with an even smaller imprint. Or a yurt. Or a lean-to. Beach shack. Or a circus caravan propped up on a foundation like my neighbor has. Or an earthquake cabin for you city folks. We like to call ours a cabin-palace.
